Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
This is the latest film in the Halloween film franchise, which originated in 1978. The first movie is seen by many as one of the classics of the genre and was a massive box office hit during its theatrical run. Halloween spawned multiple sequels, which unfortunately saw diminished returns. The first film was remade in 2007, but that rebooted series stalled after the release of the 2009 sequel.
The 2018 version of Halloween is meant to be a direct sequel to the 1978 original, wiping out all of the other followups from canon. It was first announced in 2016, and principal photography commenced in January 2018 and ran until February of that year.
